Walter Philip THOMPSON (aka Tommy) [1909-1978]
Walter Thompson was a Superintedent in the Hong Kong police when the Japanese attacked in December 1941.
He was wounded by shell fragments during the hostilities and interned in Stanley after the surrender. On the night of March 18, 1942 he began an escape with Gwen Priestwood. On their way to Chungking, they were helped by Chinese guerrillas, and Thompson decided to operate with them behind Japanese lines. He ended the war as a Lieutenant-Colonel.
Note: In Priestwood's book on the escape (Through Japanese Barbed-wire, 1943) he's given the pseudonym Anthony Bathurst.
